App description: The future-retro space adventure game with the mixed feeling of the 80's and the far future. It's amazing.

Goodbye Spacework iOS version. Till 17th of May Spacework has this very friendly price. On May 18 and 19 Spacework will have a very high price, just for fun :) After that the our iOS membership will be over. So Spacework will disapear from the App Store.
Save it! Save it! Save it! Buy more and more and more.

The surface of the Titan is soaked by acid precipitation. You receive alarm-signals from the inhabitants. They have also mentioned a monolith having disappeared not long before this strange substance started to fall. You and your team set off to investigate the situation and organise the evacuation of the Titanians. On your way, the team is attacked, and you are the only one who survives. The attackers take you and your ship to their planet, the Triton and leave you alone in a zone under control. You want to look around, but you've been locked up.

The pledge of your escape is 4 keys. If you have obtained them, activate them at the wall of the building. According to the extra information you can find on the keys, there is a crater on the planet, where a monolith is hidden inside the communication layer. The layer can be opened by a key consisting of 8 parts.

Having got out of the zone, find the parts of the key which opens the layer. You need to scrape through the territory of attacking and regenerating enemies. Beware of the collectors, because they can take away the parts of the key from you, and don't forget: if the attackers weaken you, recharge yourself at the energy depots.

Having collected all the parts of the key which opens the layer, stand into data stream at the bottom of the crater so that the monolith can be uploaded onto you. Teleport yourself to the surface.

Go to the landing-ground, pick up 4 units of fuel and fill up your ship. At last, you can set off for the Titan...

* * *

Like in the classic, famous games (Antiriad, Nodes of Yesod, Cybernoid) you need to find out how to accomplish the tasks and you need to learn using the control pads.

You, your iPad and the Spacework.

Good luck for this sophisticated, totally artificial and future-retro game!

*** On iPad 1 the full screen anti-aliasing is disable.
*** Spacework is not retina display optimized yet.

Looks interesting, but at that price I'll definitely have to give the demo a try first. Too bad there isn't an iOS demo since I could try that immediately...

This game looks interesting. This kind of reminds me of the game I played in 1991 on the Amiga called armour-geddon which was developed by Psygnosis. I loved that game back then.

This is killing me. I really want to know how they've implemented controls, but I might just break down and buy...

I've got this shortly after finding this topic. The game lacks some polish in terms of gameplay. The control buttons are a bit to small, sometimes tapping the screen is a bit unresponsive. The first level requires you to destroy a number of enemies, collect a few items spawned through the area and proceed to the next one. If you haven't fallen in love with the art and music from the trailers - chances are you'll be a little disappointed. I, however, got hooked almost instantly and think that this unique feeling compensates for those few deficiencies. For me it's a piece of art, pretty rare in games nowadays. And one I enjoy, to be clear. This game doesn't compromise on the design to reach a wider audience - that's why I can understand and accept the price tag.
If you're curious of the vision the creators had - go for it, it's definitely interesting. If you're looking for an intense-action 3D shooter - skip this one, at least for now.

Just do a search for the windows demo file name with google. The windows demo is mirrored on quit a few popular sites it seems. Strange that the developers don't seem to know about the broken links.
